Coach Jason Garrett didn't want to comment specifically on defensive end Jason Hatcher's now much chronicled contention that the Cowboys lack big-time leaders in the locker room.
Hatcher made his comments on 103.3 ESPN Radio last week.
Asked about a void in leadership at the NFL Scouting Combine, Garrett said have obvious that everyone knows, pointing to quarterback Tony Romo, tight end Jason Witten, linebacker DeMarcus Ware and nose tackle Jay Ratliff without saying their names.
"I don’t want to comment too much on what Hatch said, but we certainly have very good leadership on our team," Garrett said. "I don’t want to go into the names of the guys, but you know them. They set the pace for our football team and guys we wouldn’t trade for anybody. But like I said, the more of those kinds of guys that you have on your team, guys who get invested in what you’re doing, are willing to be the right example for their teammates, are willing to be the right example for everybody in the organization and make sure they hold everybody accountable to that standard, that’s a good thing. We have a lot of them now and we want more, just like every team in the league does."
